In 1999 (Ho and Gibaldi 2003), only four products achieved this milestone, and none were above the US $2 billion mark. For 2010, the annual revenue for each of the top six products—Remicade, Enbrel, Humira, Avastin, Rituxan, and Herceptin—reached more than US $5 billion each. 3 billion per year (equivalent to over US $20 ­million per day or US $610 million in sales per month). 2 include most of the major pharmaceutical companies. It is also interesting to note that generic versions of biotherapeutics (follow-on biologics) such as NeoRecormon, Genotropin, and Nor­ditropin also made it into the top 25 products, with annual sales reaching about US $1 billion.

A sponsor may seek a very narrow indication to expedite evaluation and hope to expand that indication to a larger patient population with studies conducted after initial approval and marketing. Phase II clinical studies enroll several hundred subjects and are designed not only to assess efficacy but also to detect acute and short-term side effects and risks. Some phase II studies are well-controlled, whereas others are open to exploratory hypotheses. A new drug candidate that successfully completes phase II studies by safely demonstrating benefit in a well-defined patient population is then required to undergo additional clinical testing (phase III) in designated patients.
